6:35 am
exit polls supported that position. so this is not just dealing with boehner. it's dealing with the american people. and the most important thing is to get a long-term component of the plan and the election results favor him, number 1. number 2 january 1st comes we put a bill on the floor, we quote lower taxes because we couldn't provide tax relief at that point for 98% of americans, and there's no way they would vote against that. >> stephanie: this raising the debt ceiling debacle he said is not a game i'm going to play again. >> we blew it last time. and if you remember the republicans for the first time in the history of the country, literally started playing russian roulette with america's
6:36 am
credit, and it was such brinksmanship that we ended up having the markets panic and had the fist downgrade in the history of our country. and that cost billions of dollars to taxpayers. in the past both parties have grandstanded on the debt ceiling increase. the out of power party always using it to make their criticisms of the parties in power. butting grandstanding is not merely pulling the plug. and that's a line that the republican leadership passed in august. and that's catastrophic consequences -- >> stephanie: that is going off cliff in my opinion. >> yes. >> stephanie: and as the president said before that has never before been used as a negotiating point for one party.
6:37 am
>> that's right. either party -- if this becomes a tool that one party or either party can use, where literally we hold hostage the american economy, and where to achieve your goal, you literally destroy the confidence that world needs will pay our bills. that is highly destructive and the harm you'll do far outweighs any gain you claim to be speaking. so we have got to draw a line and if they actually -- they being the republicans in this case actually assert that then in my view the president has the ability to use the 14th amendment, and pay our bills. >> stephanie: that's right. this l.a. times article i referred to talking about a lot of people wrote to george bush and said don't do this.
6:38 am
can letting a failed tax policy die be such a bad thing? >> that's exactly right. our tax revenues are down. historically they have been about 18 to 19% of the gross domestic product. part of that is the recession, but significant loss of revenue is because of the bush tax policies, and it was based on this idealogical fiction if you lower taxes it will increase revenues. and their focus was lowering taxes at the high end. we had higher tax rates under clinton, and we created 40 million jobs and had a surplus. then the bush folks came in put the war on the credit card prescription drugs on the credit card, and lowered taxes at the high end, and we had only 700,000 jobs, and had
6:39 am
astonishing deficits since then. >> stephanie: the same l.a. times piece even makes that case with the war in afghanistan winding down, the military is asking for less than congress wants to give. so i think there has been so much hysteria over this fiscal cliff that i'm not sure it's warranted. >> that's exactly right. and also the ryan budget you know, their doctrine -- and it really is doctrining. lower taxes for the wealthy, and that will trickle down. untrue. number 2 increase spending in the pentagon way beyond what the pentagon wants and that will make us three. and that cut back on things like education and scientific research and somehow we'll have a stronger future. none of those things make any
6:40 am
sense. at the core of the ryan approach, and he is representative of the dominant republican point of view now, is that you are on your own. it is an ayn rand kind of deal. if you are well off and can afford private school and you can give in a gated community, that's the way it ought to be and all of us ought to strive for that, but the fact is when this country has done well, we have had policies that have given the middle class an opportunity to succeed, and it takes a public/private partnership. >> stephanie: yep. representative, how do you see this playing out and how about the bill for the middle class tax cuts in the house? what is going to happen? >> they are going to cave. we just don't know when. they have to. because they are in this bizarre position of resisting having tax
6:41 am
rates go down for 98% of the american people only because they insist on having them go down for the top 2%, and that's not sustainable, and they know it. it's a total political loser for them. so really the question is whether they'll capitlate before january 1st or after january 1st. and they don't have to go to father professor, grover norquist. >> stephanie: exactly. representative welch thank you for giving us an update. >> thank you.
